Revolutionary Tale of Two Families
Killarney House & Gardens, Killarney National Park
Killarney House & Gardens Reception, Killarney, Co. Kerry
20 August, 6pm - 7pm
Niall Miller will give a hands-on demonstration of wattle and daub building. See and learn how people in the past made warm eco-homes using local hazel, willow, bamboo, straw and daub.
Using Leitrim-grown hazel, willow and bamboo as wattle and Leitrim grey daub mixed with straw as plaster, we will make a section of wall. Come along and get muddy! Wear old clothes! Open to all ages. Did you ever live in a mud home, work with earth or know where there are some earthen buildings? Come along and share your stories with us.
